As part of the Program in Dance’s fall 2019 co-curricular dance offerings, Sun Kim leads a Hip-Hop class on “popping.” This class series develops a diverse understanding of hip-hop’s foundational forms. With an emphasis on physical techniques, the course exposes dancers to the many dance forms that exist under the umbrella of hip-hop. Through the course, students will understand the basics of hip-hop’s form and will also be challenged to synthesize elements of groove, musicality, texture, footwork, and personal expression in their own individual improvisation.

The Program in Dance offers weekly, drop-in co-curricular courses where members of the University community can train with professionals. Classes are FREE and open to all Princeton University students, alumni, faculty, and staff. No prior dance or movement experience needed.

No advance registration required; participants will be asked to sign in and show Princeton University ID. Participants may leave class early if needed.

These classes are not open to the general public.
